Open Day at Kempinski Hotel Zografski Sofia

On September 23, 2012 Kempinski Hotel Zografski Sofia organized Open Day for families and friends. The idea of the event was to show the working environment and the services offered from the first step a client takes until the check-out as well as to bring together the families of staff and build up even a stronger Kempinski family feeling.

 

The Open Day included several tours around the hotel showing both facilities enjoyed by Kempinski Hotel Zografski guests and back-of-house interesting places among those the hotel Japanese garden which is the only one of the kind on the Balkan Peninsula, the biggest hotel ballroom in the city, the view over Sofia from the highest point, hotel own electricity generator and water reservoir which can keep the normal operation even in times of unpredicted critical situations and others. The hotel team prepared a presentation featuring hotel development from its first day in 1979 up to the present time. A special kids’ room was arranged for the smallest guests to keep them entertained and happy while their parents explored the hotel world. Various surprises added to the atmosphere leaving moments long to be remembered and talked about.
“The Open Day is a great opportunity for friends and families to see the environment where our colleagues work, understand the diversity and challenges of hotel life and sense something that you cannot read in a book or see on TV: the atmosphere of hospitality”, said Gerd Ruge, General Manager of the hotel. “In this way we would like to put the beginning of a nice tradition for all our friends and families who can better understand our work and obligations and maybe, inspired by this initiative, join hospitality one day”.
